Earning his classical musical chops in an era dominated by minimalism and pre-recorded tape, Stephen D. Forman chose pop accessibility instead.

Seattle-based composer Forman blends traditional formal structure and contrapuntal writing with modern synthesizers and inventive orchestrations. If you ever wanted to know what "Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun" would sound like if written today, then you and Forman share the same vision.

Born in 1969, his compositions vary from wedding waltzes to rock singles to dreamy electronica, although his signature symphonic works are known for their combination of sweepingly grand gestures and sprightly hooks.

Same to you... happy Easter (we're a Passover crowd over here). Glad you enjoy Desert Fancifal, it *is* meant to be enjoyed "programmatically". I'm pretty sure I included the program signposts under the song... just close your eyes for the ride. Thanks! --Stephen
